Happy New Year

Happy New Year everyone! 
I hope you have a lovely fun night. Be careful if you're drinking!
I'm looking forward to 2009. I had a good year, had tons of up and downs but by far, it was all life changing.

My new year resolution is: not to eat red meat.

- I thought some of these were pretty neat and relevant to me since I'd like to do a few changes.

Vera Wang, designer
“Work more and work out more.”

Venus Williams, tennis player
“I think it’s time to give up leggings and add more prints to my closet in 2009. I also think it’s time for more accessories, but I want to avoid those big chunky pieces.”

Chanel Iman, model
“Step back into my closet and re-create the things I haven’t worn in a while and do wardrobe swaps with my friends. After the swap, you can go shopping for that one item that will make the trade pop. It’s kind of a green way to go.”

Plum Sykes, contributing editor, Vogue
“Find more multitasking accessories. My new thing is a diamond clip from the thirties that my husband is hoping to get at auction for my birthday. You can wear it as a brooch, as two clips on shoulders, or in your hair. I am also giving up anything It. It bags, It shoes—it all seems so outdated. It girls, however, are always in.”

Lisa Mayock, designer, Vena Cava
“Learn Spanish. Or at least start.”

Maria Cornejo, designer
“I just discovered wheatgrass shots. I take them whenever I’m feeling run-down and need some vitamins.”

Coco Rocha, model
“Wear more jackets. This is the time to bundle up, and a girl cannot have too many coats because it is what you are seen most in during the winter season.”

Marina Rust, contributing editor, Vogue
“I know if I squeeze a lemon into a cup of hot water and honey every morning I will actually feel and look better. Maybe this year I will remember to do it.”

Tory Burch, designer
“Keep things in perspective and not sweat the small stuff. I always try to focus on the big picture and remember if my family is happy and healthy, nothing is worth getting too stressed about.”

Sarah Mower, contributing editor, Vogue
“Ask not what your country can do for you. You can be just perfect-looking, but if you’re not contributing something worthwhile, however small, how can you feel good about yourself?”

Jenna Lyons, creative director, J.Crew
“It’s time to give up froufrou and add more menswear tailoring, nude, caramel, buff, gray, and a touch of neon…and, if I were ten years younger, a jumpsuit!”

Maria Sharapova, tennis player
“I’m all about costume jewelry pieces for the new year—something that’s vintage-inspired or just a classic big Frank Gehry for Tiffany cuff bracelet to add to a black dress or a Temperley tailored jacket.”

My Thoughts

Hustler Watch: Kid Cudi from Eighty81 on Vimeo.
When I watched this video, I gained more respect for Kid CuDi. He's just an average joe who moved to NYC at age 20 to accomplish his dreams. So he inspired me to make a goal.
- By age 20, I WILL be living in NYC. I don't want to waste time.:)

The Spring '09 ads for Chanel are so classy.  The images and color palettes used in the ads definitely go well with the Spring 2009 looks. Karl used the model Heidi Mount again, she was the model for the 2008 Resort.

For Christmas, I asked my mom to get me this Jumbo Chanel handbag. But now, I don't want in red. I think I'd prefer black since Chanel's main colors are black & white!

And.... I'm obsessed with Lookbook!

Christmas Came Early For Me

The Hayden Harnett collection is NOW available online and at your local Target! Check it out. I'm dying to get the clutch in black and brown!

I posted about this not too long ago I'm anxious for the Thakoon(Dec. 28th) collection!

Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas!

Thakoon's collection was available at my local Target on the 26th! And I didn't purchase the clutch wasn't as nice as I thought. But I did purchase the big black bag for my mama!

Just Perfect

Beyonce's new video for "Halo" featuring Michael Ealy... Their both looking gorgeous. But I was definitely paying attention more to Michael. Nice video tho. It's very simple.

This Is Cute

in the studio with KID CUDI "Welcome to Heartbreak" from va$htie on Vimeo.

This is how I look when I'm singing "Welcome to Heartbreak" and looking at myself in the mirror! LOL.

Santa, Please Bring Me This!

When I saw these at Macy's a while ago, I really did think they were hideous. But I just saw them in a magazine and changed my opinion... I'm IN love. Now their 5 inch heels, not sure how I will manage to be walking around in these. But I'll manage. I'm also surprised that their by Jessica Simpson. Whoever is designing her new collection, their stepping their game up. 

I just told my mom about them, and I'm hoping to get these with the Bebe Black Pumps, I also asked for!

Happy Holidays!

Lusting Over Chanel La Collection Paris Moscou

I just ordered this. I've been calling a few stores including the local Macy's here. But no store knows about this? And I called a two Chanel boutiques, apparently this isn't even in their "product book", I would assume SA's should been knowledgeable about everything that's Chanel. Hm. I'm looking forward to receiving this and I'm having high hopes so they better be fabulous! I'm sure they are.. Karl is fab, himself.

For more information, check out the collection here.

Things I'll Be Picking Up After Christmas

I'm literally counting down the days until Thakoon and Hayden-Harnett for Target comes out on December 28th! These are things I will be picking up for sure. I'll put these clothing pieces away until Spring. This is so exciting! I cannot wait to run to the Go-International section and grab everything! Are you excited to see their work at your local Target or even on If so, let me know what you like or will be purchasing yourself!

Do Looks Really Matter?

I just don't see Alex dating Madonna.... Madonna is old and well, she's kind of been around. I'm sure Alex had his fun, too but he's just too good looking for her. I think he looks better with Victoria Secret model Melissa Britos. She's cute and young! Maybe I'm just tired of Madonna... I love the woman for her music but she isn't attractive to me. I have noticed that she likes Hispanic men, her daughter's father Carlos is Cuban and Alex is Puerto Rican...


Marriage Seems To Have An Affect On Your Style

Ever since Scarlett Johansson married her gorgeous boy Ryan Reynolds, she's been covering up well. She still looks amazing but you don't see her clevelage as much. Normally, you would look at her chest first then at her face or outfit. Maybe marriage does change your style... Or you have no reason to show off what you have. She's still lovely and so is Eva Mendes.

Kanye West at Power 106's Cali Christmas

I love you, Kanye. Thank you SO much for last night.

Check out my other videos here. You will also hear my awful voice... Geez, no one ever told me to shut up when I sing.... until that day!

I Really Want These For Spring '09

I think these BCBG Maxazria "Garret" shoes would look adorable in my closet. Since I won't be able to wear them until Spring. I recently added these to my Christmas list. I think the color is gorgeous, not a color I would normally go for. But I fell in love. The heel is okay, I've never been a fan of wood looking heels. But this is a must have for my Spring wardrobe! Too bad, the BCBG Maxazria in Fresno doesn't carry these. I must go looking for these when I'm in the city.

Been Wondering

(debuting a New York themed sneaker at the Knicks game)

I've been wondering once his contract is up with the Cleveland Cavaliers(Summer 2010), where would he go? New York Knicks? Or maybe he will surprise everyone and play for the Lakers? I really don't know... I know he has tons of love for New York but I don't think Jay can convince him. He still has a lot of time to think about it and decide, especially when the offers start coming in... I hope "his" team does well this season, I'd like to see him at the finals.

I will start designing. I was asked today at school if I was a fashion designer, random I know. I paused and responded with a "no but maybe one day I will be." I began thinking since I will not be returning back to school, I might as well do something until I move back to L.A. So, I called my mom up and asked if her if she still has her Singer sewing machine. Thankfully, she does! After the 18th, I will start learning how to sew. Then, I'm going to go to Downtown Los Angeles to purchase pretty fabrics. Who knows, maybe I'll be the next Monique Lhuillier? ;)

Just a thought.

Happy Birthday Jay<3

Happy birthday Jay. I hope you have an amazing day with uh, Bey. May all your wishes come true.(Even tho you can get whatever your heart desires) One day, I will meet you and tell you how amazing you are to me. And how we should of been together, but it's okay cause I like Bey. Happy birthday love!

It's also Tyra Bank's birthday!

Madonna Louis Vuitton Ads

Check out the new LV ads featuring the Queen of Pop, Madonna. The setting is very different for LV but I really like the French bistro theme. I did assume the ads would be boring since I wasn't a fan of her Versace ads. But they turned out very neat, I think they were trying to emphasize on her manly toned body.

Loving My New Babies

I recently purchased these Vince Camuto's Garcia "Shooties". I love them! Their so classic, the stacked hell and how the gold compliments the black. I've been wearing them since they arrived at my door! I'm also admiring these "Gordon" Booties, not sure if I'd wear them tho. I really like them in black or the eggplant color.

"I never want to erase your story, even with the tragedy it brings."

You did a few bad things to me, and you thoroughly deceived me. However, I am not speaking negatively; I am solely stating facts. I can say many things about you but I won't. You have taught me more than any university can teach me, and there were times we shared have impacted my life in the most positive of ways. You taught me how to become a woman. I could not ask for a greater gift. I found my vindication not in the arms of another man, nor through the acquisition of a well paying job, or any other worldly fortune, but rather in growing, by loving, by learning, by sticking to my feelings and owning up to who I truly am. There are a lot of questions I have always wanted to ask you. We always had a good time together. You would upset me, then kiss me and all of sudden, I forgot that I was upset. It took some time, and there's definitely some rough patches even still, but I finally did it. And for what it's worth, it was worth all the while. I had the time of my life. I thought it was impossible to stop loving you and forget you...... Well, I have.

From the bottom of my heart,


I've never seen these pictures before so it was mandatory for me to post them! In case, you weren't informed Kanye is coming out with his own clothing line called "Pastelle". It's been in the works for a good while now but he said he doesn't want to release it until it's perfect. It's a men's brand but I also did read that he was working on a small ladies line. Hopefully, that's true! Last time, I heard it's release date is sometime in January 2009, a month before the Air Yeezys come out. This is going to be a mix of urban wear with high-end style. Kanye is always on top of things!


Penelope Cruz looks so gorgeous in this CHANEL suit. She looks so modern! She reminds me of Audrey Tatou, the actress who played Coco in the Coco Chanel movie on Lifetime. The hat, the tights and the black pumps are perfect for her look. She's a pretty girl with the perfect eyebrows.

Is Anna Wintour Getting The Boot?

Rumor has it that Anna Wintour might be leaving Conde Nast Publications(Vogue, Men's Vogue and Teen Vogue). I keep wondering because this rumor has been out for a while. I also heard she might be replaced by the editor of Russian Vogue Aliona Doletskaya THEN I heard French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld will be taking over. I'm quite confused. I do think American Vogue is becoming very boring now, almost too simple. Maybe that is why I suddenly stopped purchasing Vogue and rather wait to browse through it when it comes to my local library.

Do you think it's true? Are you still amazed by American Vogue?

WWD has confirmed that rumors are false.

"I Go Through Life Like a Karate Kid"

YAY! Britney's tour will be in California for my birthday(April 17) week! I haven't yet decided where I'd like to see her. I'd love to see her in L.A but then I prefer smaller arenas. Has anyone ever been to the San Jose HP Pavillion or at the Sacramento Arco Arena? The Staples Center is a little too big for concerts, I think so. But I'm just too excited cause NO MATTER, I will be there singing and dancing to Britney & The Pussycat Dolls!

THANK YOU BRITNEY! I've missed you! This will be the BEST birthday ever, hands down.(I have make up for this past birthday.)

REMEMBER to purchase "Circus" TODAY! And Happy birthday, Britney!

Two of my idols:)

This Made My Night

This made me smile! Make sure to listen when it hits 1:46.

Tuesday, November 25, 2008


is hard sometimes. I've had more downs than ups this year. Why can't things just go the way I planned? Now I have to wait until April to relocate and return back to FIDM. I will be a bum for four months. I am too stressed to sleep, I don't even think about sleep as I used to. My diet has been very poor, I have no appetite to eat due to everything that's happening. Working out has became my best friend. I really don't care for the Holidays. My parents and I still aren't on speaking terms, even my mother.... I never realized but I'd rather have my parents attention, then their credit cards.

The only thing that makes me happy at the moment are my material things, my books, magazines, "808 & Heartbreak"(the soundtrack of MY life), "I Am...Sasha Fierce" and friends. And material things have NEVER made me happy only after I purchase them. I think I need to get away. I'd love to just be able to fly to New York City right now when round-trip tickets are $248 but sadly, I have no funds for that.

Life really is tough, sometimes.

"I’ll be stuck with a sister her name is defeat
She gives me agony so much agony
She brings me so much pain
So much misery like missing your last shot and falling to your knees."
- History by Jay-Z

Sue London flats prices vary.
The ones I purchased from Barneys were $180.
Online their $134 & $148. - slighty cheaper, plus no shipping fee!

All I Want For Christmas

THAKOON! I want everything! I don't care if I wont be able to wear it until Spring but I want it all for Christmas. I am so excited for this collection. I loved what Thakoon did with Gap a few years ago with the Designer Collection. I have one of his shirts that he made for Gap and I'm still IN love with it. I am in love with the theory for this collection, floral, prints, and fun. I'm sure there's more pieces but this is probably just a preview. I'm excited, are you?

I will be at Target on the 26th at 7AM, actually 6:45 with a Starbucks cup in my hand.


Very Psyched About

I'm actually pretty excited for this campaign! I've always been a fan of Katie Holmes and I think now, she has great European style. She knows how to play it down and up for events. I think it's going to be different for Miu Miu since they used celebrities such as Lindsay Lohan, Drew Berrymore and Kristin Dunst. Katie is very classic and modern compared to those young scarlets. But maybe Miu Miu wants to go down another direction? I sure hope so. Since Katie attracts a whole different audience, maybe they want to market to those 27+ year olds and mothers who love fashion. I like the brand and especially, their handbags. But I never really cared for their advertisement, they don't make me stare at the ad for 2 mins like others, lol. I think Katie will do a great job, she's fab!

Isn't she soo naturally pretty?


These Make My Feet Happy

I will refuse to buy any other flats but Sue London! I love them. I thank my friend Jhalani for introducing me to them a few years ago, which I should have listened and purchased them then! But my feet are so happy when I wear my Sue Londons. Their so adorable and comfortable. They come in such pretty colors, wearable all year-round. I also recall when Whitney(The Hills, Season 2) mentions Sue Londons to Lisa Love and Andre Leon Tally when their trying out dresses for the Pre-Emmys show. I recommend these flats to everyone. For the price, they really are worth it. Their customer service is BEYOND great. They helped me find a pair when I was in NYC and called Barneys for me and told them to save the pair for me. When I e-mail them regarding a color or how they fit, they responded back within a few hours. They personally called me to let me know that my items were shipped and told me when the arrival date. When my flats arrived, I also got a personal letter from Sue London! Do they even send personal thank you letters, now days?

The colors that I own are Tabac and Rhein. I cannot wait to expand my Sue London collection!

Check out Sue London.

My Best Friend of The Moment

While I was in Target, I decided to go to the beauty department... And I totally remembered about how much I loved the Maybelline New York: Volume Seduction! I tried it at Fashion U cause they gave free samples and it really did make my lips fuller! My lips aren't small but aren't completely full either. My top is smaller than my fat bottom lip, lol. Of course, I'd love to have fuller lips! I purchased the shade Seductively Nude as seen on Adriana Lima on the advertisement. I recommend it to any girl who wants fuller lips! It works! For $4.29, you can't beat that!

I need to stock up just in case if they discontinue it.

Kanye's 808 & Heartbreak

Click here to listen to the AMAZING "808 & Heartbreak".
*you must click on the album cover picture & all the songs will show up.

I got the e-mail around 6pm and I've been waiting ever since. I am so looking forward to
 purchasing this album. It's incredible! It's very different from his rapping style but it's such a good change for him. It suits him well and he does a good job at it. Make sure to listen to the entire album! Some of the songs that got leaked have been changed and updated.

My favorite songs are:
Robocop, Street Lights, Bad News, Pinocchino Freestyle, Amazing & Heartless.

Here is the retail packaging for the album.
This has always been my favorite picture of Kanye and his lovely mother.
After winning several Grammys in 2006.

This hit me when I saw it.. Ms.Donda West, I know you're so proud of your son. :(
